A property bursting with potential, in Kilmarnock, Scotland, is going to auction next month. And, with an asking price of just £1 and no reserve, the unique property is gathering a lot of attention…

The three-storey, semi-detached townhouse looks charming from the outside, with decorative red brick detail and a large bay window on the first floor.

It also has a large garden at the rear, a garage and off-road parking.

Its location, in one of the larger burghs in east Ayrshire, is also attractive, known for being where poet Robert Burns published his first collection, Poems, in 1786, as well as being the founding place of Johnnie Walker whisky.

But, it's what lies behind the front door that justifies this unusually cheap price.

The property's interior is neglected and, in places, fully collapsed. The need for a full refurbishment makes this house a DIY-lover's dream as the empty shell allows the buyer to make it completely their own.

Auction House Scotland describe it as 'a unique opportunity for a builder/developer looking to return this building to its former glory.'

Could you take on this challenge? Just imagine how satisfying it could be.

The auction will take place on October 5th. Contact Auction House Scotland for more details.
